NaPoWriMo #14: “Fragment” by Maggie McGinity

Fragment
By Maggie McGinity

Forever, or a
Reasonably long
Amount of time
Cannot stretch between
Tomorrow and tonight.
In so many short hours
On a coal-colored evening
Nothing can stay
All waits for the sun
Languishes for the day

However
Under certain circumstances
My preference would be
A longer night
Now withheld from me

Bright stars in a black sky
Eyes searching for light
If only there was time enough to gaze.
Now, not even time to graze
Going, going, gone the glory days.”

Quote:

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
-Emily Dickinson
